Jennings Isn't Promised Pistons' Starting Point Guard Job

Joe Dumars isn't sure who will start at point guard for the Detroit Pistons this season.

Brandon Jennings is assumed to have the inside track, but will compete with Chauncey Billups and Peyton Siva.

Billups said he was returning to the Pistons to be their starter at point guard.

"So did Will Bynum, so did Peyton Siva, so did Brandon Jennings. They all told me that when they signed," president of basketball operations Joe Dumars said with a laugh. "I was like, 'Yeah, you are. You right, bro. I said that to all of them. 'You right, bro.'"

Maurice Cheeks will ultimately make the decision.

"I don't know yet," Dumars said. "I can tell you what Mo has told every guy from Chauncey to Brandon to every guy. He said, 'Look, come in and earn it. I'm going to give it to whoever earns it.' He said that to every single guy.

"He said, 'Joe I'm not going to put myself in a trick box where I'm committing myself to something and it doesn't play out.' So, he's kept it wide open. He said, 'Let's see what happens.' That's exactly what he said. That's exactly how it's going to be."
